The gaps are looming larger.

Principal trumpet George Vosburgh has announced his retirement after 25 years, together with his wife JoAnn, who is the orchestra’s librarian.

There are now principal vacancies for trumpet, second violin, timpani and concertmaster.

The effects of the lockout continue to be felt.

    Given Murray Crewe’s passing away just a few days ago, the Bass Trombone position will need to be filled as well. That would make 6 empty seats. Right?
